Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Thursday, July 18 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
EPA's Regional Food Recovery Challenge Award
Credit is given where credit is due, as the United States Environmental Protection Agency recently awarded CenturyLink Field with their Regional Food Recovery Challenge Award. The stadium donated nearly 14,000 pounds of food to local food banks, in addition to collecting all foods that can't be donated for composting.
Over the past two years, the home of the Seahawks and Sounders FC has averaged 6.41 tons in donations per year. All of these statistics contribute to an incredible 97% diversion rate of food waste from landfill.
The award was given to First & Goal Incorporated at their stadium all-staff quarterly meeting early this month. First & Goal Inc. is the organization founded by the late Paul G. Allen that operates CenturyLink Field to create the ultimate fan experience at the multi-purpose stadium. "First and Goal has developed CenturyLink Field into a standard-bearer for sustainability amongst sporting venues, employing Washington State's largest solar array, compost and recycling programs and energy-saving measures to make the field one of the 'greenest' in the world," says Vulcan.com.
Special shout out to all of the hard-working men and women who work at CenturyLink Field as a part of First & Goal whom all made this award possible.
